no outside involvement in the death of sean hoare, a former "news of the world" reporter who'd been an early whistleblower in the scandal. hoare was found dead monday at his home north of london. more now on today's hearings and the murdoch media empire. we're joined, from london, by john burns of "the new york times," and from new york, by david folkenflik, who covers the media for npr. so, john burns, what struck you most about the murdoch's message today? >> well, it was a heavily lawyered performance but for all that i thought it was pretty skilled. the lawmakers who were a lot more brief, better briefed themselves than the parliamentary committees in london and britain usually are, they are not... they are a shadow of their counterparts on capitol hill but today i thought that the lawmakers did pretty well but they didn't lay too many gloves on the murdochs. i think that it was greatly to their advantage in a paradoxical way that mr. marbles, i think his name is, entered from stage right with his custard pie or his shaving foam pie, whatever it was because it presented rupert murdoch wh

new day drops a new bombshell. on monday, it was the death of sean hoare, the first journalist to go on the record pointing the finger directly at former "news of the world" editor andy colson accusing him of actively encouraging phone hacking. police say his death is unexplained, but not suspicious. and in an ironic twist, the company accused of hacking got hacked themselves. murdoch's son paper had to quickly remove this fake headline on its paper last night. today's story makes no mention of parliament or their boss, rupert murdoch. the questioning is expected to take about three hours, but don't expect any detailed answers to direct questions about phone hacking. all three have said they will not answer questions that could in some way jeopardize the ongoing criminal investigation. matt? >> all right. stephanie gosk in london this morning. stephanie, thanks so much. michael wolff is the author of "the man who owns the news: inside the secret world of rupert murdoch." he is also the editorial director of "ad week" magazine. good to see you. talk about the dynamic. one of the bigge
